I'm an explorer - both near and far. I've studied abroad in Italy, and lived in several different states (Arizona, Maine, Missouri, North Carolina) since high school. I grew up in a suburb of NYC and recently moved to Manhattan to be closer to family - mainly my 1 yr old nephew and my 85+ yr old grandparents.
Living a well balanced life and having a positive attitude are important to me. I work hard at my job, but also value playtime. I earned my masters in education after working on it part time for a few years. Now I'm getting back into photography and started practicing yoga and running.
I also spend my free time cooking, hiking, listening to music, reading, going to art galleries/museums, traveling, watching movies/TV shows (on Netflix and Hulu), going to farmers' markets, and concerts.
